From the Seattle Symphony Facebook page is a post in tribute to Marvin Hamlisch, who among his other accomplishments was Principal Pops Conductor of SSO, and who just died:


Here's a link to a marvelous photo of him in front of Pike Place Market, just a few blocks from Benaroya Hall:

Rest in peace, Mr. Hamlisch.

I had the privilege of meeting him briefly a few times over the years, and wish the obits could say that in addition to his many well-known accomplishments, he seemed always to be just the nicest guy.

He did seem like a nice guy, and his music gave pleasure to many.

He had a sort of a recurring role on the sitcom The Nanny and was very funny in it.
